About This Event
In November, the 26th UN Climate Conference, COP26, is tasked with setting an ambitious new global agenda for tackling climate change. Despite growing political pressure for action, climate change is subject to persistent ideological divisions, with a lack of consensus around the causes, scale, or existence of the threat, and resistance to proposed solutions. Climate scientist and communicator Katharine Hayhoe joins Rachel Bronson of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists to explain how science, faith, and human psychology fit into the narrative around climate change and why it is still possible to mobilize collective action despite our differences.
Copies of Katharine Hayhoe’s 2021 book Saving Us: A Climate Scientist's Case for Hope and Healing in a Divided World are available to purchase from The Book Cellar.
